PSP rate of fire being reduced for Pros to 10.2 BPS for 2014. Confirmed by PSP

The PSP is reducing the rate of fire (ROF) for the Professional division to 10.2 balls per second. The last time the ROF was reduced that low, Pros still played at 12 BPS. This time it looks like the Pros will play at 10.2.

I've also heard they are going to further limit coaching.

What do yo guys think? Will this make games better?

EDIT: OFFICIAL RELEASE FROM PAINTBALL SPORTS PROMOTIONS

After careful consideration this change is being made to tip the risk/reward balance in favor of bigger moves and more aggressive play.

In addition to the reduced ROF the PSP will also introduce a Pro fields only plan to help minimize the effects on the game of bleacher side coaching. More comprehensive information about the upcoming season will be available soon and complete details on these changes will be included in the 2014 edition of the rulebook which should be available in early January.

The PSP is re-vamping the ref programs around a new standardized certification process with the goal of delivering a consistent high level of officiating excellence across all the divisions.
There are event dates and proposed locations for the entire year in hand. The details of which will be forthcoming soon.

In order to consolidate recent growth and in order to reach future goals the league has made some key personnel additions for 2014. Look for the new personnel press releases beginning next week.

I refused to play any psp events the last time they lowered the ROF and I'll do it again.

It didnt just suck a little, it made paintball not fun.


Leave it alone. let us play.

It's not that bad. You'll save a little over a pod for every minute of consistent shooting. There's a bright side to everything haha

Teams shot MORE paint at 10.5 because no one got shot on the break.

I guess the question is what would this affect the most, off the break you would see a slight decrease in kills....in the end it seems like it would lengthen games, if only by a little, so it comes down to if that is a good thing or not as well.

It's lower bps, not no coaching.

Best thing to happen in a while in my opinion. Will force tighter, faster more strategic game play. Instead of what we saw alot this season with just sitting back and dumping to take down G's.
If people want to play high rates of fire go uncapped semi only lol....
then everyone would complain about having to pull a trigger to fire a ball... lord forbid

i miss the days of 15.4.. let alone this 12. I thought 13.3 was perfect. i think making it slower is a mistake. I definitely think less coaching is great however

This ^^^ I think that reducing the ROF will make the game slower and in turn less fun. Isn't it the point for paintball to be an extremely FAST-PACED game?

I wonder if this has anything to do with the Nppl fading away. If only there was no ramping that would be awesome.

10.2? That might slow the action down a bit. Break out those Revvy's guys! Good idea PSP.

I wish the rules/bunkers/dimensions would remain consistent for at least two years in a row. It seemed to me like PSP was having a helluva a great year, and with the fracturing of the NPPL/Valken relationship it would PSP was poised for another great year.

Now they change things again, making playing even semi worthwhile again. Very upset by this. Now I'm actually looking forward to the APL.

I'm fairly certain I can get our tippmann 98's to cycle 10.2 bps =p
